My grandmother gave me this recipe. It's so simple and easy to do. It is easily adjusted to make larger quantities, and it's very yummy - a nice reminder of the holidays. These can also be used as garnish for the top of pumpkin pies, on anything with whipped topping, and as an ice cream topping. I think they'll store indefinitely, but honestly, they rarely last past the first day in my house! Enjoy!
- 2 1⁄2 cups shelled whole pecans (or nut of your choice)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 egg white
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ginger, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg, to taste
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon, to taste
- Mix nuts in with egg white.
- Add sugar and spices.
- Spread on a shallow pan sprayed with Pam or greased (I use stoneware, no greasing required).
- Bake at 250 degrees for 25 minutes.
- Cool on wax paper.
- Store in airtight container.
Excellent recipe and a snap to prepare. I'm looking forward to making this recipe again for the holidays. Thanks for sharing!
Nice taste and quick to prepare. I used pecans and all enjoyed snacking on these. Didn't find any taste overwhelming.
A very nice recipe! It was a little too nutmeg-y for me so I would add less next time. DH LOVED them and ate most of the bowl. These would make a nice gift. Thank you for posting!
